1-Watch this video and remember it.

2- pitstop hill area might be ok for you but stay away from ebays and other waves..the rest of the ments are mostly advanced waves.

3- medewi and balian area

4- some lowtide barrelling waves are soft and wally at hightide. read a few guide books. most indo waves are pretty much tube city waves or bigger wave spots. its not famous for mellow waves.
5- kuta lombok area has some mellow waves and a lot of range.

6- batu karas, long soft mellow right, sometimes offshore in dry season.

Batu karas point break is mellow slow and easy at the shoulder section but fast and hollow beyond the point . After takeoff the wave mellows out roll op to 400 metres , perfect for longboard or beginners . Batu karas reef break is in front of Villa Monyet Java beach, it's right hander with easy take off , works well when it is high tide, good quality clean walls from weist high  to overhead roll up to 150 metres. And there are left or right hander spots around batukaras 30 t0 45 minutes motorbike ride
